Re: Mussolini's Alfa for sale.

What a beautiful looking baby! You gotta hand it to him, Mussolini saved Alfa from liquidation, made the trains run on time and had the best uniform in the 2nd WW. It's just a shame he was a strutting little prat who sided with Hitler .

The same with the Swedes. When they switched from left side driving to right in september 1963, they decided to do it step by step. At first they did it with lorrys, then the busses, and then....

Well, so we like to say it in Norway
